Rubin Releases New Music Video "Let's Ride" Oct 30, 2014 09:08AM

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 30, 2014

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes presents the release of the "Let's Ride" Music Video by Rubin. This video is currently available for viewing now.

Since he's a smart and convincing salesman who works hard in the office and out on the road with clients, Rubin figured there's no reason he can't apply a similar mentality to his passion for hip hop music.

Born and raised just north of Chicago, Rubin became musical at 5 years old when he began playing the piano, which he continued for many years. In high school, he developed a strong interest in hip hop culture, battling in the lunchroom and incorporating Tupac quotes into his English compositions. These two forces–musical know-how plus an uncommon ambition to excel at rap music–would come in handy down the road.

He knew to focus on his schooling and position himself to make a mark in the world, though he rapped whenever he could in college, having freestyle battles at parties and nightclubs, and sitting down to write a 16 whenever the moment presented itself. He learned Spanish at a bilingual level and went on to achieve his International Studies degree in 2005, which has been very useful for him in standing apart from the crowd.

After college, he moved to Miami and began a serious career in the business media and conferences sphere with a focus on Latin America. His work took him all over the globe, organizing corporate finance events which involved heads of state, cabinet ministers, blue chip CEOs and CFOs, investment fund managers, and the like.

Once the foundation to his corporate career was laid, Rubin was finally in position to focus his mind on his lifelong passion of hip hop music. His first studio recording immediately received national attention and tens of thousands of hits, and he began churning out songs at an insane pace. Touching on subjects from across life's most important themes, Rubin drops knowledge and shows his depth every time he touches the mic.

Sage Restaurant Group Launches Kitchen Rush: A Mobile Game Based On Departure Restaurant Oct 30, 2014 09:08AM

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Resulting from a dedication to providing innovative and playful food and beverage programs, Denver-based Sage Restaurant Group (SRG) launches "Kitchen Rush," a mobile video game to engage fans of its popular Portland concept, Departure; a pan-Asian restaurant helmed by current Top Chef contestant, Gregory Gourdet.

Gameplay is simple: players swipe tiles to help a Chef Gregory avatar sling as many orders of Departure classics as possible before the time runs out. Repeating orders increases a multiplier, but watch out! Orders can get backed up if you're not fast enough. The concept is similar to the popular "Candy Crush" mobile game with players competing for the highest score. However, unlike most popular games, "Kitchen Rush" was created to reward players for their time and skill with real world incentives. Points can be redeemed at Departure for favorites like edamame, a smoked salmon roll, Departure wings and Brussels sprouts.

"With 'Kitchen Rush' we have something that will engage Departure customers by providing a fun look into busy kitchen life while simultaneously encouraging repeat business through game-earned dining incentives," says Departure's Jeff Brown.

Currently exclusive to Apple's App Store, "Kitchen Rush" will be updated regularly with new features and surprises, reflecting the playful nature of Chef Gregory and his restaurant.

About Sage Restaurant Group

Denver-based Sage Restaurant Group, co-founded by restaurateur Peter Karpinski, creates locally-inspired experiences where food, drink and design meet and mix. These independent restaurants, adjacent to hotels, deliver exceptional catering and in-room dining experiences. Wherever they are located, SRG's concepts feature a distinctive scene and a subtly infused local vibe designed to appeal to a guest who is hungry for life.

* Portfolio holdings and weightings are historical and are presented here for informational purposes only. They are subject to change at any time. Negative allocations and allocations in excess of 100%, if any, are primarily due to the Fund's unsettled trade activity.

** Credit quality is a measure of a bond issuer's ability to repay interest and principal in a timely manner. The credit ratings shown are based on each portfolio security’s rating as provided by Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and/or Fitch Ratings, Ltd. and typically range from AAA (highest) to D (lowest), or an equivalent and/or similar rating. For this purpose, when two or more of the agencies have assigned differing ratings to a security, the highest rating is used. Securities that are unrated by all three agencies are reflected as such. The credit quality of the investments in the Fund's portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. These ratings are updated monthly and may change over time. Please note, the Fund itself has not been rated by an independent rating agency.

*** The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due primarily to the Fund’s use of borrowings; net assets do not include borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in the form of loans, preferred stock, reverse repurchase agreements and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that have a leveraging effect on the Fund’s portfolio, the value of the Fund will be more volatile and all other risks will tend to be compounded.

**** Percentages based on total assets.

Western Asset Global Corporate Defined Opportunity Fund Inc., a non-diversified closed-end investment management company traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “GDO”, is advised by Legg Mason Partners Fund Advisor, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Legg Mason, Inc., and is sub-advised by Western Asset Management Company, an affiliate of the advisor.

An investment in the Fund involves risk, including loss of principal. Investment return and the value of shares will fluctuate. Fixed income securities are subject to credit risk, inflation risk, call risk, and interest rate risks. As interest rates rise, bond prices fall, reducing the value of the Fund's share price. International investing is subject to additional risks. These risks are greater in emerging markets.

Data and commentary provided in this press release are for informational purposes only. Legg Mason and its affiliates do not engage in selling shares of the Fund.
